Proud as a Peacock Crochet Pattern and Kit for Sale

“Look at me!” The peacocks shout, then they fan their feathers out. 
Their feathers reach up to the sky, each one has a big, dark eye. 
“Look at me!” The peacocks shout, then they fan their feathers out. 

Proud as a Peacock is a deep triangular shawl that can be made with only one skein of lace yarn. This shawl is crocheted from the neck down, and can be adjusted very easily depending on the amount of yarn you have. As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with row-by-row written direction in US crochet term and charts

Technical Editor: Chaitanya Muralidhara

I used Rendezvous Silky Lace 50% Merino wool/50% Silk.
For small shawls, I used Sleeping Beauty and Whisper colorway @ 1 skein (100g, 800 yards).
For medium shawl, I used Emerald colorway 2 skeins (200 g, 1600 yards).

Option 1 and option 2 require the same number of beads, but for option 1, you use larger beads on the last row. 
Option 3 uses beads on last row only (you can use size 6 or 8). 

Hook: 3.5 mm (E) (adjust hook size accordingly if you use thicker yarn).

Notion: Removable stitch markers, size 6 and 8 beads (optional, see table).

Level: Intermediate

Gauge (after blocking):
After the first 9 rows, will give you 28 cm (11”) wingspan and 13 cm (5.1”) depth.
Every repeat of rows 10 - 15 adds 5.5 cm (2.2”).

Finished Size:
Small: 176 cm (69.3") across top edge, 84 cm (33.1") depth.
Medium: 226 cm (89") across top edge, 107 cm (42.1") depth.
Large: 282 cm (111") across top edge, 135 cm (53.1") depth.

I have got to get this pattern and make it after the holidays. (I work retail and will certainly not have time before then!)
